Lily Werbin: Continuing a Legacy
Lily Werbin, President and Co-owner of Elderly Instruments sits down with us to discuss her experience in leading the business her father founded.

We’re well-acquainted with running businesses, but our guest this week shares with us her unique perspective as a second-generation entrepreneur. Lily Werbin is the president, co-owner, and heir apparent of Elderly Instruments — a nationally recognized hub of music based in Old Town, Lansing.

She talks through the distinct experience of managing staff who knew her since she was in diapers, as well as the great honor of leading the business her father started.

Tune in this week for an insightful, candid conversation with the wonderful Lily Werbin.

French 75 Mocktail
The French 75 is a favorite among many, including us, but we’ve found a way to make it more sustainable. In this mocktail version, we removed the booze without losing the fun or flavor. San Pellegrino’s Limonata soda plays a stellar role in this drink, creating the perfect balance between sweet and tart.


  • 2 oz. lemon juice
  • 2 oz. simple syrup
  • Sparkling water
  • San Pellegrino Limonata soda
  • Ice
  • Lemon twists


  1. Mix lemon juice and simple syrup in a glass. Pour in ice and stir.
  2. Top with equal parts sparkling water and San Pellegrino Limonata soda. Mix once more.
  3. Garnish with a lemon twist and rub a lemon peel around the rim of the glass.
